    FSD Beta 10.69

    While I agree with the sentiment, I have a feeling that people are getting confused about who is driving simply because the feature has been named “Full Self Driving“. Love the software, hate the name.

    Supercharger - Malibu, CA - Pacific Coast Highway / Trancas Market (permit, 20 stalls)

    Why? All I get from this is that solar and battery storage are not a part of the project.

    Supercharger - West Hollywood, CA (LIVE 2 Sep 2022, 8 V3 stalls)

    Apparently it is a city-owned lot. And there seems to be a nascent letter-writing campaign against the parking fees:

    Lidar lost Tesla the robotaxi?

    I‘s a shame that the fleet of consumer owned Robotaxis looks like it will not come to fruition anytime soon. I had hoped to put my M3 to work for me.

    Ear pain/Pressure help

    Great, I hope you post a link here when it goes live!

    Supercharger - Santa Monica, CA I-10 (under construction Jun 2022, 16 V3 stalls)

    Looking good, although I did not see a transformer. Probably need to do a concrete pour for that.

    Ear pain/Pressure help

    Wow, that’s really impressive! We just took delivery on our Y, and would like to quiet it down a bit. Since you have tried so many, which ones do you think give you the most bang for the buck?

    Towing travel trailer with Model Y

    Just heard back from the service team, they don’t know anything about a retrofit of a converter.

    Supercharger - Los Angeles, CA - Venice Crossroads (under construction Jul 2022, 44 V3 stalls)

    Stopped by last night to take a peek. It looks like they are still installing the conduit. It’s a pretty big install, so it may take a while. The sun was low, and all I could get was this picture, showing the chargers, the bike bath, the light rail line, and the freeway. A transportation...

    Yosemite Super Chargers, AKA Mariposa/El Portal....ETA?

    Plugshare shows 11 Level 2 chargers in the Valley, and numerous ones outside the valley. Also a SC in Groveland.

    FSD Mini Review/Rant - Promising, But Not Worth Your Money - Yet

    I’m in the crowd that lives in the real world, not some fantasy land where Tesla is either infallible or evil.

    FSD Mini Review/Rant - Promising, But Not Worth Your Money - Yet

    Well then, maybe it's not for you?

    FSD Mini Review/Rant - Promising, But Not Worth Your Money - Yet

    Buyer beware. There is no place in the car, the website, or the app that indicates that FSD is currently active outside of the beta. Outside the beta, it’s just Autopilot.

    FSD Mini Review/Rant - Promising, But Not Worth Your Money - Yet

    I am a little confused. You say you subscribed to FSD, and then you say you never got the Beta. So what were you evaluating?

    Model 3 Road Noise

    Pardon my ignorance, can someone please tell me what this is referring to?

    Towing travel trailer with Model Y

    Just took delivery of a MY LR. We have been towing our [email protected] teardrop with our Model 3, and are looking forward to doing the same with the Y. We ordered it with the Tow package, which I have yet to try out. I read recently that some 2022 Ys have the lithium 12 volt battery, and that until some...

    In the face of a recession, should I buy a Y now or wait?

    That’s why I said everybody has to do what’s right for them.
  18. Misterbee

    In the face of a recession, should I buy a Y now or wait?

    Everyone has to do what’s right for them. It was a stretch for me to buy a 3 in 2018, and I am glad I did. Last fall I placed an order for a Y, not sure if I could really afford it. But I wanted to lock in the price. A few weeks ago I got the word that delivery was imminent. The current high...

    Supercharger - Marina Del Rey, CA (LIVE 28 Jul 2022, 8 V3 stalls, VALET ACCESS ONLY)

    Not a hell of a lot, besides the hotel restaurant. There are boat slips, if you like to look at boats. Bali Way is little more than a glorified parking lot. And a walk to anything interesting and back would likely take longer than you would need to charge.

    Supercharger - Marina Del Rey, CA (LIVE 28 Jul 2022, 8 V3 stalls, VALET ACCESS ONLY)

    The valet rule is stupid, but I understand why it’s there. Parking is at such a premium in MDR, the hotel figures they can have their cake and eat it too. I think they are mistaken.

    What will happen to current owners once Tesla drops the price of new Y's?

    You’ve already made up your mind, so what’s the point?

    New Tesla Orders Will Require Subscription for Navigation After Eight Years

    Story of my life….. In fact, I thought I would keep my 2018 M3 LR FSD until the wheels fell off. But now the Y that I ordered last fall on a whim has come up for delivery. and since the price is about $11,000 less than the same Y ordered today, I might go through with the purchase. Especially...

    What will happen to current owners once Tesla drops the price of new Y's?

    Well, no one’s forcing you to buy a car right now, are they? Feel free to wait for that price drop.

    J1772 Mobile Charger Capable of 40A

    The Tesla Mobile Connector will charge at up to 40 Amps, if you have the correct adapter for whatever kind of outlet your parents house has. https://www.tesla.com/sites/default/files/pdfs/NA_Corded_Mobile_Connector_Owners_Manual.pdf

    Towing travel trailer with Model Y

    That’s some pretty strong headwinds! Touring the southwest while pulling a [email protected] XL with a Model 3, we typically got around 400 kW/mile, as long as we kept it to 55.

    Charging at home or not?

    If you want to save a few quid, you could just have an outdoor power outlet installed at your home, and charge with the mobile charging cable (assuming you have one, the used to come with the vehicle). Much cheaper than the wall charger, with virtually the same functioinality.

    Suggestions for towing 2 ebikes with model 3 LR

    Sportsrig used to make a pretty good trailer for bikes and kayaks, with suspension desined fir such light loads.
  28. Misterbee

    Are many people here using a model 3 to tow a small travel trailer?

    I like the Earth Traveler a lot, but the long lead time didn’t work for me. So I got a NuCamp [email protected], which has worked out great. Fyi, trailer aerodynamics hurts your range more than weight.

    Superchargers in Southern California (location speculation)

    It would be interesting to know how many people are transient chargers, passing through town to or from somewhere else.
  30. Misterbee

    Supercharger - Santa Monica, CA I-10 (under construction Jun 2022, 16 V3 stalls)

    Looks like the chargers will be positioned such that any car coming off the offramp will have a view of all the charging Teslas. Good product placement?
  31. Misterbee

    Can I drive to the airport and leave my car with some company for them to rent it out?

    There was a company that offered that. I even had an account, but I don’t recall the name. Pandemic killed it, understandably…

    bottomed out - plastic cover under rocker panels cracked on both sides - any experiences?

    I had a very similar accident, scraped along a high curb late at night. Turned out to be very expensive. I not only damaged the plastic trim piece, I also scraped up the rocker panel. Thact’s the really expensive part. The body shop told me that the Model 3 is unique, in that the rocker panel is...

    Supercharger - Los Angeles, CA - Venice Crossroads (under construction Jul 2022, 44 V3 stalls)

    The roof is visible from the freeway while traveling eastbound on I-10 at Robertson. Looking forward to monitoring the progress.

    Supercharger - Hollywood, CA (permit application May 2022, 28 stalls + diner)

    Carhop service would seem to be a good fit here. Order ahead online, pull in, tell them what space you are in, and enjoy a nice meal while you charge.

    Supercharger - Azusa, CA (permit filed 04/19/2022, 16 stalls)

    Interesting location! Target, CVS, and Starbucks. Also walking distance to Azusa PD, as well as the Azusa Gold Line light rail station.

    Supercharger - Barstow, CA - Tanger Way (LIVE 26 May 2022, 20 V3 stalls)

    Are those destination chargers I see in the foreground?
  37. Misterbee

    Supercharger - Santa Monica, CA I-10 (under construction Jun 2022, 16 V3 stalls)

    Drove by yesterday. Looks like they have moved out the vehicles that were parked in that area, and replaced them with orange cones. Hope springs eternal….

    EV Camping in SoCal Area

    State parks with hookups are hard to find around these parts. Private campgrounds are a bit easier to find. You might try one of the RV websites like Campendium, or just find a KOA. Here are a few places that I like: Malibu: Leo Carrillo SP Ventura: Fun For The Family And Kids | Ventura Beach...

    EV Camping in SoCal Area

    Not too many national parks have campsites with electricity. You might be better off searching one of the RV websites, like campendium.

    EV Camping in SoCal Area

    Not necessarily true. RV parks are waking up to reality.

    Tesla Screen (Dangerous)

    Perhaps it’s because after over 10 years of gathering accident data, there is no evidence to support the notion that the screen poses a safety risk. And I am sure others have mentioned that Teslas have an extensive number of available voice commands, which would eliminate many screen looks and...

    Supercharger - Carson, CA (approved by city council 15 Mar 2022, 20 stalls)

    The Doubltree Hotel is right there, and has a restaurant inside. Might make an order to go, and eat in the car.
  43. Misterbee

    Supercharger - Malibu, CA - Pacific Coast Highway / Trancas Market (permit, 20 stalls)

    Excellent news! I know this site well, and I expect the stalls will be located in the parking lot just behind the market.

    Towing travel trailer with Model Y

    I wish I had more towing experience to draw on, but the pandemic pretty much shut that down. A few thoughts: My M3 is a 2018 Dual motor Long Range. A 2021 M3 or Y will have longer range, so you might go farther. The big trip I took was an 8000 mile tour of the Southwest USA. It was great...
